I managed and won policy changes for a $6 million public sector investment to develop employee-owned small businesses that build wealth in low-income communities. I also engaged community-based organizations to leverage data-driven social indicator systems and collective impact models throughout NYC.
I built strategic partnerships and led grassroots & guerilla marketing efforts to spur early adoption in Brooklyn, NY for the innovative hyper-local social network platform that connects neighbors and strengthens communities.
I spearheaded a grassroots community organizing program; I recruited, mobilized, and oversaw leadership development for low-income New Yorkers in 5 neighborhoods to win policy victories in poverty reduction and food security.
I cut my teeth as a young change maker by running an emergency food program and coordinating a network of community and faith-based based organizations in Central Brooklyn.
